Not nearly as nice as Fraser Island
So packed with day trip tourist groups that it was not enjoyable until people left on the last ferry. The food was not good and the place run down. The pools were really run down. Felt like a 2 star motel. The dolphin feed was cool and if you walk a distance, you can get away from the crowds at the beach. Room wasnt ready until 2pm. Could be fabulous but isnt.

Great venue but no wifi
Only downfall, Reception was not signed so guests walking around not knowing where to go. No wifi at all, regardless of where you are. If you manage to connect in the bar it is for facebook only so is not as advertised. Lots of free activities to do, staff were wonderful, dolphins, fish, stingrays and sharks were great to see. The way was great to swim in at any time.

48 Hours of Bliss on Tangalooma
We (my brother) and I had an amazing time at Tangalooma. The weather was glorious so that we had several swims in the warm sea. We had a choice of places to eat and although some were expensive for what we had, they were all of a very good standard. The staff were all friendly and helpful. It was my brother's first time there but I have visited Tangalooma 7 times. It is still as great as ever.
